Beginning early in June, Better Future Project staff will provide fellows with eight days of immersive training in community organizing, campaign and movement strategy, facilitation, anti-oppression, and more. Fellows will then spend nine weeks working with volunteer leaders on the hard-hitting campaigns of 350 Mass, while receiving ongoing coaching and training. At the end of the summer, fellows will apply what they have learned to organize an exciting and impactful grassroots mobilization. When fellows return to their campuses this fall, they’ll be primed with meaningful connections, enhanced skills, and renewed passion for the climate justice movement. We can’t wait to see what these young leaders will do!

You can invest in the next generation of climate justice leaders by contributing to the Summer 2016 Climate Justice Fellowship! All contributions will help offset program costs, including the stipends that make it possible for many fellows to choose the Climate Justice Fellowship over conventional summer jobs.
